has not been resolved but we are doing more teaching about religion today. i was at a conference in new york of many groups interested in religious literacy including many foundations talking about how to improve it and we all agree it is a serious issue. if we are going to live with our differences we have to know more about one another. it is a religious freedom issue. if you don't teach young people about their neighbors we are not going to live well together in the future. in tolerance and hate is grounded in ignorance so we have got to do better. there's only one required religion in the united states in public school but i know about and i would note there is any more and that is in modesto, california and i helped them get that going after a conflict they had. they have done really well. all ninth graders take world religion for a semester and it has been fine. the religious community supported in modesto but there are many world religions electives proliferating. fairfax county has the 11 and maryland has quite a few. not many districts have a lot of world religion electi

of the people who are some form of religion in this country are christians, so you can say anything you want, i suppose, and get away with it. but not really so, a christian nation, because the first amendment to the u.s. constitution separates church and state. however, i always like to say, "well, in some senses, it's a christian nation, but it most certainly is a jewish nation, because that whole creation, liberation, exodus, making of a holy land - we've got towns around here called zion or new canaan or whatever - what the whole drama - and again, i'm not making this up, folks, as dave barry would say - the ministers on the boats, like the arabella , coming into the plymouth colonies, actually gave sermons that replicate or bring out the whole old testament drama, so we get a feel of these kinds of things there. let me move - before we take a couple of questions here - i want to get to our rabbi bronstein, because what makes this class work is you don't have to listen to some religious studies professor talk about somebody else's religion; you can listen to the real thing. and in this case
are accusing of -- us of injecting religion into plicts. i have no problem what the archbishop does. i have no problem with the evangelists do or what the priests on the left do. it didn't bother me that during the vietnam war democratic and republican governments were led by priests encouraging people to break the law in the adage of the civil disobedience thing. so our position, separation of church and state, pluralism, so no little kid with a minority religion of some sort will feel offended or left out or feel uncomfortable. but yes, prayer in schools, a voluntary basis. worked for many, many years until the supreme court ruled differently. and i'm glad we got this question. i think there has been too much said about religion and politics. we don't believe in denominationally 6 moving in. it wasn't our side that raised the question about our president, whether he was a good christian or not. [applause] so that's our position. separation of church and state, pluralism, respect for all. >> vice president bush, four years ago you would have allowed federal financing for abortions in cases

study of state standards a number of years ago and found that religion is now treated there. and do not think it is serious treatment yeah. it is still superficial. i think the religious literacy problem has not been resolved. i was at a conference yesterday of many groups interested in religious liberty -- literacy, and we all agreed it was a serious issue. if we're going to treat each other well in this country, we have to know more about each other. do not understand our neighbors, we will not be able to live well together in the future. we have got to do better. there is only one required religion course in the united states in the public schools, and that is in modesto, california. i helped them get that going after a conflict they had. they have done really well with that. all ninth graders take a of world religions. it has been fined. -- fine. there are many world religion electives now. they are the exception. they're not many districts have world religion electives. but the core curriculum, where we need more natural inclusion of teaching about religion, is a tougher nut to
everything that there is to know or even a tiny bit of what there is to know about any given religion - it's to give us the skills so if you are interested in going on further, that you'll be able to pursue it, so that's the key there. before taking a couple more questions, we are actually kind of waving good-bye to our first dimension as we move down the pike. but good-bye's not the same - we want to keep these dimensions together. we're going to - i'm kind of excited - we're going to move into myth in particular, but myth and ritual, and in this class, i want to talk about the relationship of myth, ritual, and include religious experience, so we're going to be doing that also. but before launching into this great leap into the next segment of the course, i just want to take a few more questions on buddhism, or comments or insights that you had. yeah? >> when i think of christianity or judaism, i think of community, families - the thing with hinduism and buddhism are the men seem isolated from the women, and the men are social people; it seems - i want the family to be brought into it, i

in politicized religion. as i described in chapter seven, of religious cranks ceased to be a minor public nuisance in this country, beginning in the 1970s and grew into a major element of the republican rank-and-file. pat robinson's strong showing in the 1988 iowa presidential caucuses signal the gradual merger of politics and religion in the party. unfortunately, at that time i underestimated the implications of what i was seeing. it did strike me as oddly humorous that a fundamentalist staff member in a congressional office was going to take time off to convert the heathen increase, a country overwhelmingly christian for almost 2000 years. i recall another point in the early 1990s when a different fundamentalist gop staffer said that dinosaur fossils were a hoax. as the mayor of legislative mechanic toiling away what i hope to be a similar president ecclesiastical calling, i did not get cd ideological impulses far different from mine were poised to capture the party of lincoln. if the american people polled more like iranians or nigerians and europeans are canadians on questions of evol
